Your best and worst odds in Vegas

There's a reason Las Vegas' nickname is "Lost Wages." They didn't build all those casinos to lose money. 

The house always has an advantage, but some games are a better bet. If you're heading out to Sin City (or Atlantic City or Connecticut, for that matter), it pays to know your odds before opening your wallet. 

Here are the best and worst odds in a casino, according to vegasclick.com: 

Blackjack

House edge .5%

Craps

House edge .8%

Baccarat 

House edge 1.06%

Roulette

House edge 5.5%

Slot Machines

House edge can be up to 17%, depending on how they're set.
